6. Joe Hart
Club: Manchester City
Wage: £4.68 million-a-year
Joe Hart is one of the very few Manchester City players to survive the takeover of Sheikh Mansour and his many billions of pounds.
While a host of world-class stars have come in, Hart remains the number one goalkeeper at the Etihad.
Signed for the modest fee of £600,000 in 2006, Hart now makes that amount in just under two months.
He may have lost his place for several weeks earlier this season but he is now getting back to his best and helping Manchester City in their bid to win a second Premier League title in three years.
